Be Calm

Anxiety, stress, panic, and fear creeps up from behind to attack every ounce of peace dwelling inside. But a calm spirit gently washes over negative feelings subduing them into a deep slumber. As soon as the feelings of panic arise I say to myself, “All that worry and stress will not change anything so take a deep breath and chill out. My God will take care of it.” Negative emotions usually make me feel pressured to act right away. It’s always better to be still and make a choice once you’ve gained composure. Remain calm. Be still. Just be calm!

  1. Hi Shannon! I love this post..in fact, I have a draft in my own blog titled, “Still”
    This time of year, one has to find a way to “be still” “keep calm” and cope. The word “still” itself is calming to me…especially in a Biblical context–from Psalm 46, “He says, “Be still, and know that I am God…” and I love reading about the storm from the book of Matthew–so many relevant references to today. Thanks for sharing and reminding me to be still 🙂

  2. Shannon, just exactly what I said to myself today “Peace! Be still and know that I am God.” Thanks for highlighting the feeling and passing it onward.
